Zamek Tenczyn Rudno Reviews
The majestic castle on top of an extinct volcano! Jan 17, 2016
Just 25 kilometers from Krakow, on top of an extinct volcano (extinct, of course, approx. 250 million years ago :)!) is Tenczyn Castle. It was built in the system "Eagles Nests"(defensive system with medieval castles were built on the Krakow-Czestochowa Jura) in the fourteenth century. Today's ruins are located in Rudno.
It's a beautiful complex, which despite its condition further presented with panache and power of the glory years. With the castle it connected many legends. One of them says that a nobleman bricked up alive in one of the bastions his unfaithful wife. Apparently further, in the evenings you can hear her moans and screams.
Great place, which offers a magnificent and impressive panorama of the Krakow-Czestochowa Jura! I highly recommend to all who choose to Krakow!
